"WASHINGTON, Saturday, May 16-1 P. M.
The Capitol waa again thronged this morning,
long before the honr at which the High Court
waa to meet. There was less excitement, how?
ever, than on Tuesday last, owing to the im?
pression generally prevalent that the Radicals
intended to dodge a vote by postponing the
farther consideration of the impeachment case
until after the Chicago Convention. The re- ]
suit, however, showed that they had determin
I ed upon a different line of tactics.
Imrnedi ately after the High Court was called
to order by Chief Justice Chase, Senator Wil?
liams moved that the sense of the court should
be ?rat taken on the eleventh article of impeach?
ment. This motion developed the cunning
programme which had been determined on in
a s e jrefc caueua of the impeachers. They had
ascertained that- the eleventh article, though
intrinsically the weakest of aO, waa nicely to
rally mere votes in favor of conviction than
any other; hence' their resolve to test their
strength on that article first, and in case of s
failure to convict, to adjourn the case, and j
- thus to bold their verdict on the remaining ten
ira
. ? articles in ierrorem over the President, be?
sides Ukrcg the chances of any accessions ot
strength that the admission of Radical sena- I ;
a tors from the reconstructed States may bring
to theil ranks. The largo majority which the
Radicals hold in the Senate enabled them
: " et??y to carry out this scheme.
The vote was taken upon Senator Wilhams'
motion and resulted :-Yeas 34, nays 19; Mr.
Wade* vdfcmg inline afllrmative.
- The eleventh article upon which th o voto was
thus or dered to be taken reads ai f?ll o vre :
^ ARTICLE XI.
; That said Andrew Johnson, Pr?sident of the I
United States, unmindful of the high duties of J
his office and of his oath of office, and in disre?
gard of the Constitution and laws of the United
States, did heretofore, to.wit: on the 18th day j
of August, 1866, at the City of Washington,
and the DiBtrict of Columbia, by public speech,
declare and affirm in substance that the Thirty
ninth Congress of tho United States was not a
Congress of the. United States authorized by
the Constitution to exercise legislativo power.;
nuder the same; bat,' on tho contrary, was ?
Congress of only part, of the States, thereby
denying and.intending to deny that the legis?
lation of said Congress was valid or obligatory
upon him, the said Andrew Johnson, except in j
so far as be saw flt to approve the same, and
also thereby denying and intending to deny
.the power bf -the- said Thirty-ninth Con
^ great-to. propose amendments to the Con?
stitution of the United States; and, in pur?
suance of said declaration, the said Andrew
Johnson, President of the United States,:
afterward, to wit: "on tho'21st day of Feb?
ruary, 1888, at the City of .Washington, in
the District ot Columbia, did mil awfully and in
-disregard of the requirements of the oona titu
' tion, that he should take c are ?hat the la we be
faithfully executed, at.--.?.I to prevent the exe?
cution of an ac t-OD ti tl 3d "An act regulating the
tenure of certain civil offices," passed March 2,
1867. by unla~wfDlty devising and contriving,
and attempting to devise and contrive, means
by which he should prevent Edwin M.
" Stanton from forthwith resuming the funo
. tiona of the office of Secretary for the De?
partment of War, notwithstanding the re?
fusal of the Senate to concur in the sus?
pension therefore made by the said An
drew Johnson, of said Edwin M. Stanton, from j
said office of Secretary for the Department of j
War, and also by further unlawfully devising
and contriving, and attempting to devise and j
contrive means then and there to prevent the
execution of an act entitled "An. act making
appropriations for the support of the army for
-the fiscal year ending June SO, 1868, and for
other purposes,'' approved March 2,1867, and
also to prevent the execution of an act entitled
"An act to provide for the more efficient gov?
ernment of the rebel States,,r passed March 2,
1867; whereby the said Andrew Johnson, Presi?
dent ot the United States, did then, to wit: on
the 21st day of February, 1867, at the City of ?
Washington, commit and was guilty of a high
misdemeanor in office.
v The President, in his answer to this article,
it will be remembered, denied that he had de?
clared or affirmed that the Thirty-ninth Con
-greas was an illegal Congress, or that he had
made any of the allegations charged in the
article. He had said nothing of the competen?
cy of said Congress to pass laws while Sou t h -
ern Stacee were unrepresented. Lastly, be de?
nied that he had attempted to defert the ope.
ration of the Reconstruction laws, or any other
law of Congress.
Chief Justice Chase announced that, in ac?
cordance with the order of the court, be would
now proceed to take the sense of its members
Tapoo the eleventh article of impeachment. The
clerk was directed to report the article, and the
names of the several senators were then called
out in alphabetical order, the Chief Justice ad?
dressing to each the question :
-Mr. Senator, how say you, is the respondent,
Andrew Johnson, President of the United
States, guilty of a high misdemeanor or crime,
as charged in this article ?
As the members of the High Court severally
responded guilty or not guilty, a breathless
silence prevailed in the hall, and a thousand
pencils anxiously recorded the character of
each vote. The result of the vote waa as
follows :

The announcement by the Chief Justice that
thc vote had "resulted in the acquittai of the
President as to the eleventh article, two-thirds
of the court not voting; in favor of conviction,
was received without any demonstration of ap?
plause, though exultation was visible on the
countenances of the President's friends in the
galleries and on the floor.
- The result binged chiefly upon the vote of
Senator Boss, of Kansas, who had given no in?
dications whatever np to the last moment of
of his views and intentions.
After the buzz which succeeded the vote had
subsided, Senator. Williams rose, and moved
that the Court adj o ara to the 26th of Hay.
The Chief Justice ruled that the Senate was
now in proc?s s of carrying ont the order to pro?
ceed to vote upon the articles of impeachment,
and that no motion was now in order while
that was pending.
Senator Conneas appealed from this decision,
and, the question being put to the Court, the
decision of the Chief Justice was overruled by
a vote of yeas 24; nays SO.
The question then coming up on the motion
to adjourn, Senator Henderson moved to amend
by striking oat the 26th of Hay and inserting
the 1st of July. The amendment was not
agreed to-yeas 20; nays 34. The question re?
curring on the motion of Senator Williams, it
iras agreed to-yeas 82; nays 21. So the High
Court adjourned until next Tuesday week.
To-day's proceedings, it is admitted on all
hands, has been a splendid victory for the j
President The impeachment managers had
counted confidently upon Sc -.tor Boss voting
(bx conviction, and their disappointment is so
great as to render them desperate. They now
say that the President must be turned ont, by
fair means or foul, before the close of thia
month.
On" the' other hand, the President's friends
are delighted and encouraged at the result,
and declare, that he has nothing to fear in
the future-his opponents having done their
worst to-day.

THE PROSPECT-LEADING RADICALS LO SIN G HOPE
NEW ARTICLES PROPOSED-RADICAL SENATOR
FROM THE SOUTH TOBE ADMITTED-FORNE?'
RESIGNATION A SHAM.
The Washington correspondent of the Balti
more Gazette writes nuder date of May li:
1 have an important announcement to maki
to-day. The leading Radicals here have giver
np all hope of convicting the President unde:
the present articles. The managers, there
fore, held a meeting this morning m the base
ment of the capitol, with a view of preparing
new charges, to be submitted, probably, aftei
Congress shall have admitted a sufficient num?
ber of bogus Southern senators to effect theil
purposes. It is contended by some of the des?
perate men in the House that additional arti?
cles may now be preferred in connection with
those already under consideration; others sug
Sat a virtual withdrawal of the old articles,
e admission of the Southern organizations,
and a consequent acquisition or sufficient
strength to insure the deposition of the Presi?
dent upon other charges. The managers had
under examination tine morning, I understand,
one of the private secretaries or the President.
Another baa been summoned, and stall others
of Mr. Johnson's household, I learn, will be
brought before the managers to-morrow, to?
gether with many outside of the Executive
mansion. I cannot see the feasibility of this
plan, upon the hypothesis that over a third of
the senators are really averse to conviction.
They; comprehend, with the Conservatives,
ample force to keep out the new senators until
the question of impeachment shall have been
finally settled to their satisfaction. Will they
have the nerve to pursue this course ? Will
they sustain a veto of the infamous omnibus
bill, or the bill now before the Senate for the
admisi?n of the State of Arkansas ? I am
aware that other versions of this matter are
current.
It turns out that Forney's resignation is a
mere preconcerted sham. It is observable that
he makes biB retirement dependent upon the
appointment of a successor. It seems be bad
assurance that no "appointment" would be
made. His missive was accordingly tabled,
and there it w?l lie.'
I have it from trustworthy authority that
Wash burne, in argument, distinctly told Mr.
Trumbull that Grant would decline the Chicago
nomination if the President was not removed.
The conversation occurred, I learn, on Tues?
day. Mr. Trumbull made* no reply. A sound
reason this for the deliberate violation of a
man's oath.
Greeley attended the House to-day. He was
sound asleep for more than an hour on a sofa
back of the bar-a sign that he had been up
late last night. He does not drink, and it is
therefore probable be was at work in '.stiffen?
ing backbones'' to a very late hour last night.
The dodge of "new articles" is attributed to
his inventive genius.
MANCFACTCRIXG PUBLIC SENTIMENT-THE RACE
FOE THE VICE-PRESIDENCY.
A Washington dispatch of the 14th inst., to
the Baltimore Sun, says :
We have now the admission, from an author?
itative source, that the Republican congres?
sional committee, through their chairman, on
Tuesday, telegraphed to an hundred different
points in the Northern States, urging Grant
clubs and other Radical organizations to get
up meetings and other demonstrations to in?
struct Republican senators to vote for convic?
tion of the President.
It is stated here that Mr. Fenton has with?
drawn from the further pursuit of the nomina?
tion for Yice-PreBident of the United States at
the Chicago Convention. The same authority
says Mr. Fenton does this with the under?
standing that Mr. Wade will give him a posi?
tion in his cabinet in case he (Wade) becomes
President. It is aleo stated that Mr. Wade has
positively promised Forney the Secretaryship
of the Treasury and General Sickl es the War
Department.
IMPORTANT LETTER FROM SENATOR HENDERSON
ON THE VERDICT.
The Missouri delegation in the House of
Representatives having importuned Senator
Henderson of that State to take sides against
the President, he addressed them the follow?
ing reply:
WASHINGTON, May 14,1868.-Gentlemen : In
an interview with you on the aay before yes?
terday yon suggested that my position on the
impeachment question was against the almost
unanimous wish of the Union party of our
State, and that you ?feared violu-.ce and blood?
shed might follow the President's acquittal.
Inasmuch as I owed my position here to that
party, and expected to support its men a
measures, in the coming canvass especial
and as I deprecated tbe consequences ;
thought might follow, though I did not anti
pate nor fear any such results, yet, in order
place myself beyond the possible censure
those whom I knew to be my best friends, I
once proposed to forward to the Governor i
resignation as senator. To this yon did i
consent, and I then requested you, as i
friends, to consult together, and determi
what you thought was proper for me to
under the circumstances. Ton did so, and t
result was that, believing "the safety of t
country and the interests of the loyal peo|
of the United States demand the removal
Andrew Johnson," you ask me to withhold i
vote on any article of impeachment upon whi
?ou (I) cannot vote affirmatively. So soon at
ad time to read and consider this paper,
found I could not comply with the request wit
out that degree of humiliation and shame
which, I was satisfied you, as honorable me
would not wish to subject nts. I had airea
spoken in the Senate, and I thought cone]
sivelv, at least so to my mind, against eight
the articles, and bad informed yon that I w
no less decided in my judgment against tl
sufficiency of two others, learing me in don
only as to one. If, with those clear corni
tiona expressed in foll Senate, I should now i
sfjfint, I would forfeit my own self-respect ki
stand defenceless before the world. You agre<
to reconsider your opinion as expressed, ai
although you 'at.first resolved to adhere to i
I am gratified that upon further reflection ye
agreed with me that the reqnpt was quite u
reasonable, but, you still ttsisted, as yoi
opinion, that my duty required my voi
to be so cast or withheld aa might seem n
cessary on some one article as to seem
conviction. I at once mentioned the difficult
attending this suggestion. Senators had bee
and were still so reticent on the subject, that
could not ascertain their positions. I kne
them to be greatly divided on the several art
des, and they were even liable to change the
minds -at any moment before the final vol
should be taken. But as you expressed a ch
sire that I should not resign' unless it beean
absolutely necessary to have a eucceseor in m
place favorable to conviction, I promised t
give you the result of my exclusions so soo
as I could ascertain the probable result o
one or two of the articles. -I have endeavore
to ascertain that result. I cannot, and no'
write you to say, and be assured that I Bay i
in that spirit ot friendship aid kindness whi c.
you have always extended .'to me, and whicl
now undiminished, I have crier entertained fo
you, that your request on this subject ha
placed me in the most difficult and d?licat
possible position. lam satisfied you dono
realize it. I have given it the most serioui
consideration, both on yous and my account
and especially on account of the gravity an?
importance of the subjects presented.
The result of that considetar.cn is, that hav
ing been compelled, as a member of the Sen
ate, to take an oath to try this case and to d<
impartial justice according to the law and th<
evidence, I cannot nowhancrably escape th?
duties imposed by the obligation. It was foi
the House of Representatives to prefer article:
of impeachment-it is for '; the Senate to tr]
them ; and the members of the House have nc
more right to dictate or control the judgment
of the Senate in the premises than members oi
a grand jury presenting an indictment have tc
dictate or influence the verdict of the petit j un
on the trial of crime. And I dc not thus speak
for the purpose of reflecting on your action, foi
I distinctly disclaim'such purpose, knowing, ac
I do, that what you have done and said springe
Crom, the best of motives as-,well as the kindest
of feelings. My duty in the premises I cannot
shirk, nor can I divide it with others.
If I resign before the conclusion of the trial,
it strikes me that I come ?hort of the obliga?
tions of my oath, and necessarily subject my?
self to the imputations of .weakness, or some?
thing worse. If I remain and do my duty my
constituents at present may condemn me, but
will not when they hear, m'y reasons, and the
people of Missouri have fib' reason, I hope, to
strike me down without^ heiring. If I stay
and withhold my vote, ag requested, you are
aware that, the result woila be the same as if I
voted adversely. If I resign and a successor
should come, perhaps a proper sense of deli?
cacy would prevent him from violating every
precedent on this subject by casting a vote at
all. If he sat silent, it would be the same in
result as if he voted adversely.
If he voted affirmatively, and thus secured
conviction, this manner of obtaining conviction
would likely neutralize in the end every advan?
tage to be derived from impeachment. Hence
I have resolved to remain it my post and dis?
charge my duty as it is given to me to know it,
and appealing to Heaven fer the rectitude of
my intentions and the integrity of my conduct,
[ shall follow the dictates of my conscience to
the end of this trial, and throw myself upon the
judgment of a generous people for my vindica?
tion.
Your friend, J. B. HENDERSON.

rm LATEST UTTERANCE OF THE GREAT MUTTABY
Brans,
The New York correspondent of the Phila?
delphia Ledger writes on the 13th instant :
The politicians to-day are most excited over
the following extracta ot a letter from a Ur.
Charles E. Moss (dated Washington, May
12th), which was read al tbe anniversary of
the Anti-Slavery Society this morning :
"General Grant is working hard with hie
friends to secure conviction He says John
Bon's acquittal will result in bloodshed. His
opinions ought to influence Republican sena?
tors to remove the only obstacle in the way of
peace.
"General Grant the past three weeks bas de?
clared himself in favor of universal suffrage,
md declares that must be tbe ruling idea of
his administration, if elected in 1868."
A FILL F0S THE HERO OF VLBfrfWA.
Congressman Sohenck, chief Radical fugler
it Washington, in his agony on Tuesday, sent
this telegram to local politicians over the
country:
WASHINGTON, D. C., May li.-Great danger
bo the peace of the country ard the Republican
cause if impeachment fails. Send to your sen?
ators, before Saturday, public opinion by reso?
lutions, letters and delegation.
ROBERT .. SCHENC2, Chairman.
The Providence Journal reads the over-zeal
DUB impeacher a heeded lesso> on decency. It
says the dispatch whioh cam: to that city cre?
ated "profound mortification" and continues:
The members of the Senate have been en?
gaged for nearly six weeks ii the hearing of
thia cause, and now, according to the demand
of General Schenck, their decision is to be dic?
tated to them by constituents who have given
the subject no close attention whatever. The
very suggestion is an impertinence and an out?
rage, offensive alike to all decorum and all jus?
tice.
All of which ought to haie a tranquilizing
effect upon Schenck.
A COMMERCIAL VIEW OF THE CABE.
The Journal of Co mm ere? takes courage
from the adjournment of the Senate.
"Every tick ol the clock," itsays, "is in favor
of the President. The lonsei impeachment is
kept before the people, the nore hateful and
unsupportable does it become. Impeachment
haB weakened from the first day that it came
into the Senate. Like a canoa bon fired hori?
zontally, every moment of tine has brought it
nearer to the ground, where it will lie at last, a
dull and inert thing, spurned by the foot of tho
people. We do not say that President Johnson
will necessarily be acquitted on Saturday, but
we will not disguise our conviction that his
chances of acquittai will, iu ?ul Immun proba?
bility, be better than they were oh iljutiay."
STANTON Ht A FTC
Stanton's position in deoitLidly an uncomfort?
able one just no.r, for ir the Radicals fail to
win their little game, he tviU bj tho man de?
posed by the impuachiucn!-, and not Mr. John?
son.
The Now York World says he will, of course,
"stick" until tho vote is taken, but "he must
by this time see that .he holds bis office bv a
frail and brief tenure. He will retire when the
President is acquitted, and will be the most
humiliated man concerned in these disgraceful
proceedings. To support him in his unparal?
leled audacity and insolence the Republicans
have sacrificed all the hopes of their party.
They aro justly punished, and one of their
most mortifying reflections mu?t be, that thev
stumbled to cher ruin by theil- attempt to bear
upon their shoulders so vile a pobtical carcass.
No man witu a spark of personal honor coaid
have t>i-.. onted to occupy his position. He is
'damned to everlasting "fame' for havmg first
betrayed and defied the President, and then
shipwrecked the President's enemies. There
is no part of the result in which honest men
will more heartily rejoice than in the disgrace
and ruin of this bold, bad mao."
TEE PRESIDENT'S TENNESSEE HOHE.
The Nashville Banner save :
An apparently well authenticated report has
reached here from East Tennessee that the
President's old homestead in Greenville is be?
ing refitted, preparatory to being occupied by
its old in ma te e. These repairs were ordered
some time since, but it is said that they have
been hurried of late, in case the house might
be needed on short notice. About ten mues
farther east, at a way station named Hender?
son, there is a farm of 1600 acres ?vi th valuable
mill and building, lately purchased by the
President's household, which is also being im?
proved and refitted. Here, too, the workmen,
under orders, are hurrying on the work; for
what purpoce has not been definitely ascer?
tained.
FORNEY'S RESIGNATION. ?
It is generally thought Forney has bad no
intention of resigning, but merely wanted to
get a compliment from the Senate in the shape
of a refusal to accept his resignation. There
ie no doubt, however, that lt will be accepted,
as a majority of the senators want to get him
out.
Among those named os successors to Forney
are Lafayette C. Foster, of Connecticut; J. A.
J. Creswell, of Maryland; Gen. Jarnos Brisbin,
of Kentucky; Thomas L. Tulloch, Secretary cf
the Union Congressional Committee; Wm. J.
McDonald, Chief Clerk of the Senate.

^S-A-R-S-A-P-A-B-I-IJ-L-I-A-N.-HID
DEN VIRTUES BBOUGHT TO LIGHT.-For three
hundred yew the curat! ve properties of Sarsaparilla
have lain dormant in a part of the root that have
escaped the notice of chemists. By the new process
recently discovered by Dr. BADWAY, ia extracting
the medicinal properties from vegetable substances
that enter into the composition of RADWAY'S REN?
OVATING RESOLVENT, 8 A RS AP A BILLIAN, the
crystallina principle of Sarsaparilla was found to
possess the true virtues ascribed to this root, ob?
tained as it now is under Dr. RADWAY'S new pro?
cese, rescues, by its wonderful curative power over
all forms of Chronic, Mein, Scrofulous and uncured
secondary diseases, tho r?putation of Sarsaparilla
from the unfavorable opinion of the Medical Faculty.
bARSAPARTLLlAN, S ARi APABILE IAN',
associated with other ingredients of extraordinary
curative properties, enters info the composition of
RADWAY'S RENOVATING RESOLVENT, and this
remedy may now be considered as the most effectual
and quick curative remedy in all Chrome Glandular,
Skin, Kidney, Bladder and Urinary diseases. In dis?
eases of the Lungs, Bronchi, Throat and Liver, lt af
fords immediate assistance. It communicates its
curative powers through the blood, sweat and urine.
The moment it is swallo wed lt commences its work of
purification and the expulsion of corrupt humors
from the blood. It repairs the waste of the body
with sound and healthy material, and secures func?
tional harmony of each depraved organ in the natu?
ral secretion of its proper constituents. In cases
where there is difficulty ia the Kidneys and Dia?
betes, Gravel, Catarrh, or Irritation of the Bladder,
Bright's Disease, Ac, Ac, ls present, this remedy
will give immediate relief and insure a cure.
QUESTION.-Dr. A-1 asks : "Win your SARSA?
PARILLAS RESOLVENT make a permanent cure
ol uncured secondary disease, and restore the vigor
of Ufe to those unfortunates who by self-abuse or
otherwise are suffering a waste of the life fluid?"
ANSWER.-The purifying, strengthening and re?
parative properties of this remedy is truly wonder?
ful. In 1849-50, when this remedy was first intro?
duced, it made extraordinary cures of persons who
were treated unsuccessfully on the Parisian plan,
both in Europe and in this country, by vapor baths of
Mercury, Arsenic, sulphur, and Iodine, Potash, Mer.
cury in several lonna, and by inunctions, which only
suppressed or stifled the di* . "ise ; and persons cured
by the Resolvent made under the old process, afflict?
ed with Sperrmatorrhoa, weakening Dischargee, kc,
threatening impotency, have sloe? married au cl have
children of from five to fifteen years now living,
without a sign of inheri.ed disease. This we con?
sidered good evidence of its thorough curative and
rrultful efllcacy.-(See pago li ot '"False and True,"
Dr. Radway's new Medical Book, article headed,
"Blcord VJ. Badway.")
If this remedy, prepared under the old process,
pc messed such powerful curative properties, its fail?
ure now is improbable and almost impossible.
In all cases of Skin Diseases, Pimples, Blotches,
Worms or Insects, Black t*pots In the Flesh, Sores,
Eruptions, Ac, a few do ?es will remove and restore
the skin to a clear and beautiful appearance.
In Chronic Diseases, Ulcers, Tumors, Fever,
Sores, Ac, a cure is sure to follow its use. la all dis?
eases of the Kidneys, Bladder, Urethra, and where
the mine dc posits sediments, either of a brick dust
color, gravel er albumen, white shreds of stringy
matter, a few doses wiU change these signs of terror
to its natural condition. SABfAPARILLIAN RE?
SOLVENT ls a far better remedy for Kidney difficul?
ties than Buchu. See that each bottle of Radway's
Resolvent has the word "SarsspariUian'' on the
